Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Why are you named on the deeds/mortgage if you are nothing to do with the property please?
Ok - that is a problem then, as on paper you have an asset.
If you have an asset it can be seized and sold to realise money for your creditors.
I dont think you can stop them getting an order for the moment to secure a charge on the property, but it may well be you can contest it.
In reality if you are part owner then that asset can be sold, or your brother can purchase your share in order to release you
But if you own an asset then it can be sold to pay for bankruptcy.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
1) Under the Administration of Justice Act 1920 and subsequent legislation, judgments obtained in the Superior Courts in many parts of Her Majesty's Dominions outside the UK may be registered by a similar procedure to that applicable to European judgments. So yes there is jurisdiction
2) I would come to an agreement with them. I think you can only delay the inevitable. Or try and contest the hearing, that is because you are named on the property. That is an issue for you.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
Sadly yes I dont think you can argue there is no claim.
I would apply your resources to contesting it or coming to a deal with the creditors in Nz.
You would need to speak to the Solicitors in the UK
Does that clarify?
Yes you have that with UK Solicitors.
I dont think you can contest it really. Your only ground is that you are named on paper only, nothing more.
But that is not a great argument.
